All Knotted Up

A quick post before I'm off to work & then a much needed and art retreat with two friends.

About twice a year my little art cohort gets together a friends cottage on a sweet little lake near by. No cooking, no husbands, no spiffing ourselves up for the world. We always pack way too much to play with, but that's OK. We all have different mediums we focus on but the time away & sharing is so enriching. I am one lucky gal to have these opportunities.

Here is my ATC for this month. I love celtic knots!
 They are time consuming, meditative. The back ground is walnut ink on Arches Text Wove. Hand made walnut ink I boiled from shells. Found out totally by accident that when dried in the sun it gets darker & darker. I'm all out so will need to make more this summer.

and here is the finished dresser for the new space in our lower level. Love the strong yellow we picked for the drawers. Lots of coats, but worth it. I have a new appreciation for 2nd hand furniture.
Have a great week end all! I know I will.
